SECTION27 Senior Researcher and Legal Counsel Faranaaz Veriava recently sat down with Patrick Bracher on his Radio Today show to discuss the Basic Education Rights Handbook. You can listen to the discussion here
SECTION27 has developed a Basic Education Rights Handbook in collaboration with partner organisations, Equal Education Law Centre, Equal Education, The Centre for Child Law, The Legal Resources Centre, The Southern African Litigation Centre and the Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute. The Handbook is a legal literacy tool that serves to empower communities, school governing bodies, principals, teachers and learners to understand education law and policy, to know when learners’ rights have been violated and what steps are required to protect learners’ rights. It is a valuable resource in providing information on case developments and legal frameworks in key-areas of education law and policy.
